I was really hungry for something spicey the other night, something with just enough kick to get the lips burning a little, so I came up with this:
First I brined some thighs in a brine of Salt, honey, ginger, red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper and black pepper for 2.5 hours.
Then I drained, rinsed and dried the thighs. Seasoned them up with Yardbirds.
I also made up some taters, diced them up, seasoned with a little oil, salt, pepper, Granulated onion and then topped with some lightly sauted onions. I put these in the Kettle with the chicken.
Let this all go at about 325* for a little over 2 hours, turning the chicken each 30 minutes. After the last turn I glazed the thighs with a mixture of honey, soy sauce, ginger and cayenne pepper, and set the glaze.
The onions on the taters didn't carmelize quite like I had hoped, but still came out pretty tasty.
All plated up here:
And it really hit the spot! All came out tasty.
I guess thats the show, thanks for looking!
